How to Tell If a Guy Loves You
A man in love is a doer, not a talker. If he loves you he will do things for you, whether that means giving you a bouquet of flowers, bringing you breakfast in bed or putting up with your aunt when she comes to visit you for three weeks. A boy in love is not someone who needs to spend a lot of time trying to guess whether he is or not: men are not so complicated, they just know. Are you wondering how to tell if a guy loves you? At OneHowTo we give you the answer to this question.
Observe their behavior. Men in love are probably easier to understand than women because they don't spend hours pondering on their relationship with their partner, whereas men simply feel affection and show it clearly.
To tell if a guy loves you, observe if does things to show you that he cares: he notices things and pays attention to you, he worries about your stuff and what happens to you, he spends time with your family and/or friends and he is interested in knowing everything about you.
Pay attention to his body language and facial expressions. If he loves you, he will be affectionate with you, treat you kindly, want to be near you and will be available when you need him. If instead he is evasive, aloof, treats you badly and doesn't pay very clear attention to you then he does not love you.

You can tell a man is in love when he doesn't fear compromise, he looks deep into your eyes (unless he is shy, in which case he will look away, but even then he will feel a connection to you), he touches you lightly on your arm, shoulder or hair, and smiles when you smile. A man in love is happy and expresses it.
It is always best to let the guy tell you he loves you first, but you can measure his level of interest with what he says about his future. If you can't get them to commit to going to a party in a month's time, that's a very bad sign. But if he asks if you want to ski in the snow, and you've only just met in late spring, it is a good sign, because it means that he clearly sees himself with you in the near future.
All in all, he wants to include you in his plans and ponders on the future.
Listen to your heart. You will know if he loves you. The toughest thing you have to do in life is probably let go of someone who does not love us.
